  1. The latest version contains an option to do the opposite: import a whole folder now without linking to it. I still use Evernote Classic because of Evernote's breaking this feature.
  2. Thanks for sharing that! Now that I just realized Evernote stopped supporting links to files on my hard drive, I'm pissed and moving off this heap of *****. Obsidian looks amazing, and being based on markdown, you can have your own data and Evernote cannot break it. Like they just broke my data. I had to downgrade to version 7. And yes I really want those collapsible bullets and other features of obsidian. I hope it works! Is there an export from Evernote to Obsidian?
  3. Yeah I've seen that several times too. This bug is so old I'm seeing different versions of it.
  4. Wow, this is the hardest popup problem I've seen since that vacation in Thailand giggity
  5. I just saw it again, with version 10.5.7 just now on OS X. Good news. I'm up to date AGAIN with the same version! :-)
  6. Where are ANY options? Evernote on OS X does not have a Preferences pane! What kind of application gives users zero choice about their environment?
  7. If you are looking at mindmapping software, all of them collapse lists that I've seen. That's kind of a major deal with mindmaps and other heirarchies. Why is this hard Evernote? I'm surmising that the Evernote code base is a big fat mess of spaghetti code and adding a feature like this is a year long project of fixing bugs and patching bad code.
  8. I do indeed find that to be easier, thanks! I would mark this as the real answer but I already chose the F2 reply. But your reply is even better. Thanks
  9. Actually that does help a ton! Using F2 is awkward on a Mac but much easier than mousing to the title field and clicking, in my opinion. I can now do what I want, which is open and write a complete new note using only the keyboard. I still think Evernote is doing it wrong but now I can just not care. :-) Thanks!
  10. When I write, I want to start in the title. I like to type a title first for most entries, then write about the title in the body. But Evernote always starts me in the body of the note first. This is worse because I cannot just tab to the title field from the body. If I were to start in the title, I could just type Command-N, type the title, hit Tab to move to the note body, and type the content, all without touching a mouse or menu directly. This is fast and desirable. At least give me an option to behave this way. Putting the cursor in the body to start is backwards because who writes like that? :-) Please! Thanks.
  11. I don't think the magic of Workflowy lies in the data format. The magic lies in how they display it. So to do what you ask would be very difficult, as it would require executing workflowy within Evernote, literally. Contrary to the claims of others, I would think expandable lists are not that hard to implement, but my observation of how Evernote handles bullet lists is that they are doing something very weird with their formatting that does not play well with others. What I'm doing now is using MindNode. To get a list from Evernote into it, I have to copy/paste from Evernote into a plain text file (BBEdit) and save that file with ".md" extension for "markdown" format. I then open that with MindNode and I get a beautiful mindmap with collapsible outline.
  12. Your point about toolchain fragmentation is a great one. I currently use Evernote, OmniFocus for my personal organization. I recently added MindNode to get this "collapsible outline" feature (plus a lot more!).
  13. There are a few out there. Google "collapsible outline app" for which ones. Mind mapping is usually just another way to view an outline, actually. They are interchangeable. I don't think it would take much of a rewrite. But neither of us knows that.
  14. I can make wild guesses as good as you, thanks. 😛 If I find an answer I'll post it. I'm currently working on this list: https://zapier.com/blog/best-outline-software/
  15. OK, I will find another add-on tool, thanks! I'm looking at workflowy maybe. I didn't know Pages would do that. Sounds cool but in testing a bullet list in Pages, I don't see it being able to collapse anything.
